Best and worst PFF grades from Panthers’ Week 11 loss to Cowboys

How did the Carolina Panthers grade out in their ninth loss of the season?

Here are the best and worst Pro Football Focus marks from the 33-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys:

Best of the offense

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

1. RT Taylor Moton: 79.4
2. RB Chuba Hubbard: 70.3
3. TE Stephen Sullivan: 68.1
4. WR Adam Thielen: 68.0
5. RB Miles Sanders: 66.9

Moton wasn’t charged with any of the seven sacks taken by quarterback Bryce Young on Sunday. He allowed two of the team’s 23 pressures and earned a solid 72.6 pass-blocking grade.

Hubbard and Sanders put forth an efficient timeshare, combining for 107 yards on 21 carries.

Worst of the offense

14. WR DJ Chark: 51.2
15. QB Bryce Young: 49.9
16. WR Jonathan Mingo: 48.2
17. RG Austin Corbett: 38.2
18. LG Chandler Zavala: 29.8

Zavala was credited with three sacks and five total pressures. He now has a 7.2 pass-blocking grade on the campaign, by far the worst for any offensive linemen with at least five appearances.

Young tossed for a new career-low 123 yards. Mingo and Chark combined for six of those yards. (Mingo had one catch for six yards.)

Best of the defense

2. DT Derrick Brown: 85.7
3. LB Frankie Luvu: 79.8
4. OLB Brian Burns: 71.9
5. LB Kamu Grugier-Hill: 69.2

Hill was all over the field on Sunday. The veteran corner allowed six receptions for 35 yards on nine targets and notched four stops.

He was also tied for the team-high in tackles (eight) with Luvu, who got himself four stops as well. Burns and Brown, in another tie for the team-lead, racked up five pressures each.

Worst of the defense

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

14. CB Donte Jackson: 41.6
15. DE DeShawn Williams: 40.4
16. LB Deion Jones: 38.2
17. DE LaBryan Ray: 29.6
18. DT Shy Tuttle: 27.2

Jackson allowed five grabs for 59 yards on six targets. He also picked up a pair of penalties.
